What to expect at SeaQuest Las Vegas
SeaQuest Las Vegas is a break from Sin City’s attractions on the Strip and offers an opportunity to interact with wildlife and learn about the planet’s diverse inhabitants.
It takes you on an interactive quest through more than 30 themed exhibits where you’ll hand-feed birds in exotic aviaries, discover desert reptiles up close, touch sharks, interact with stingrays, and much more.
Besides the sea animals, visitors also engage with many land animals, such as birds, snakes, turtles, etc.
For a small fee, visitors can enter the specialty exhibits and get a hands-on experience with different animals.

Best time to visit SeaQuest Vegas
The best time to visit SeaQuest Las Vegas is as soon as they open at 11 am.
Early in the morning, the animals are in their most active state, and the crowd is yet to come in.
We recommend weekdays for a peaceful visit because it gets crowded on weekends and school holidays.
Some experiences, such as ‘Meet the Mermaid’, are only available on weekends.
Since it is an indoor attraction, it gets crowded on bad weather days.
Important: When you buy SeaQuest tickets online, you can skip the long lines and walk in.
